You maybe humbled... I had to go find a dictionary for your reply.
Maybe that's why you and me don't have any Otis Awards Kerrowdown?

Regards!

After you changed the title, Otis went right to it for viewing......can't say the view impressed him, he is pretty particular...but your changing the title earned you one of his most coveted awards!

Yeah, it seems some people just can't get it right, so they keep on buying more and more equipment, hoping that will help

The trouble with having been trained on all equipment from large to small is, sometimes you see an image and you just instinctively know "that would be better shot in that format". So having more formats gives you more chance to do that.

It's not so much about not getting it right on one format, it's about knowing what's out there, and knowing it would be better shot in another format. But, I guess it could be the other thing too for some people.

If I' hadn't retired early, I'd be shooting at least 4 formats if you count my point and shoot, APS_c, 35x24 and 645. But most of the time I'm shooting APS-c, as stated in my sig. even though I have all 4 available in film options.

Until I see you post a 645 shot of yours, I think all you can say is I tried shooting 645...

My sister has a scanner she was supposed to get me. The plan was I get the scanner, I don't have one anymore, and I buy a film tank and chemistry over x-mas, and started using my film 645 and scanning negative black and whites. She forgot the scanner, a snow storm was coming and I had to get back north before it hit. Maybe this summer. I ws that close. One of the joys of retirement is, everything you buy goes on the credit card, buying a scanner right now would come out of my 150-450/ FF fund. Not going to happen. But I do have several albums of 645 images from when I used it. Some of my favourite photos....

I've upgraded Mac OS once to often and neither of my old scanners have relevant drivers.

The one thing I don't have is any of are my old 8x10 and 4x5 images. I don't know what happened to them, but somewhere in one of my gazillion moves, they got lost. A few of them are still locked in my memory, but, I can't get them out to show anyone.

I simply will never forget that tilt shift 8x10 I took of one of the spires at St. James cathedral in Toronto. I lugged a 70 pound kit in an awkward suitcase style box, on the subway and then walked a quarter mile with it to get there.

What I learned in that exercise is, there must have been an easier way to get that assignment done, that didn't involve subways and walking. Ryerson Politech had lots of nice buildings I could have photographed, and used tilt sfit to keep the lines parallel. The lines to the spire weren't parallel to start with. You wouldn't have known if I'd succeeded in correcting the parallels without having an un-corrected image to compare with. Life is full if little disasters.

Have you looked at any of the Supported Scanners from VueScan?

It is not the most friendly scanning software. But it has a pretty good list of supported scanners and is multi-platform so it is written to be easier for him to maintain than customized for ease of use and native look. But nevertheless it will get the job done and actually has some advanced features. I just wish he'd add modern color negative film profiles to help you scan past that orange mask. But for BW it does great. You get to scan to a ProPhoto RGB color space for maximum editing latitude in a RAW or image editor.

Well if you want to count formats, I shoot 10 formats: APS-C, 35mm, 645, 66, 67,6X9,6X12, 4X5, 5X7, 8X10.

Count formats? I don't want to count formats. Though I think about 645 sometimes.
